The Regional Geriatric Programs of Ontario has developed, tested and validated an evidenced informed core set of survey items for measuring patient experience in specialized geriatric services. The core set of survey items was developed with patients, caregivers and a panel of experts in the field of specialized geriatric services. This patient experience survey will be the first standardized measurement tool focused on the care of older adults accessing specialized geriatric services.
This presentation will focus on the process utilized to develop the survey and identify specific steps for site implementation.
